Geoengineering versus a volcano

Major volcanic eruptions spew ash particles into the atmosphere, which reflect some of the Sun’s radiation back into space and cool the planet. But could this effect be intentionally recreated to fight climate change? A new paper in the AGU journal Geophysical Research Letters investigates.

Aerosol reductions could account for up to 40 percent of future Arctic sea ice loss

Anticipated declines in human-produced aerosols could have a significant effect on Arctic sea ice cover over the remainder of the 21st century, accounting for up to 40 percent of the decline in sea ice extent that could occur in the region by 2100, a new study shows.
